Ashley G. Garner’s Æsthesia – Opening Reception @ HUE Gallery of Contemporary Art
Apr 3 @ 4:00 pm – 10:00 pm

Ashley G. Garner is bringing her full-sensory immersive exhibition, ÆSTHESIA to Wichita!!

By Ashley G. Garner
Audio by Aluria
Production Assistance by Alex Jaramillo, Nicole Absher, Christopher Brosius, Tessa Liebman, Not Impossible, and Ben Cawiezell

ÆSTHESIA is a multi-sensory body of work that explores the therapeutic benefits of nature through sight, sound, scent, and taste.
Studies have proven that when we spend 3-5 minutes simply looking at an image of nature, hearing their sounds, or smelling their aroma’s, blood pressure begins to lower, muscle tension relaxes, anxiety is alleviated and has shown to lead to shorter hospital stays, lower needs for medication, and help with depression.
Can experiencing specific plants on different sensory levels such as sight, sound, scent, and taste, have other physiological healing benefits? Do different plants heal us in different ways – such as the sound of Daisies, the sight of an Orchid, or the scent of a Morning Glory? If these different sensory experiences of each plant are combined, what would happen? This is what ÆSTHESIA explores through the lens of different plants, first beginning with six of the most commonly used flowers in the medicinal community: Lavender, Chamomile, Tiger Lily, Marigold, Wild Rose, and Echinacea.

This will be an exhibition that Wichita has never experienced before. I won’t spoil it with details, you will need to come to experience it in it’s grand nature!

We are also planning on hosting Ashley to teach a workshop about the photography and video side of the project, so that you could do it yourself, as well! I will post the details for this as soon as they are set in stone.

Immersed in Artwork – International Call For Entry – CALL FOR ENTRY DUE @ HUE Gallery of Contemporary Art
May 1 all-day

I’m trying something brand new this year with the “Immersed in Artwork” international call for entry juried exhibition.

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to step into your artwork? Well, that’s what this exhibition is all about! Through my gained knowledge of projection mapping and my 10+ years in graphic design, I will be recreating every accepted artwork into a projection mapped display, where your artwork will be projected on all four sides of the gallery.

That seems cool, but where’s the kicker? Every entry will be designated with a number, and the guests of the exhibition can pay $5 and choose a number from the rolling slideshow of artworks rotating around the gallery. Once they choose that artwork’s number, it will then become the entire gallery for 1 minute. Upon conclusion, it will go back to the rotating display and the next choice will be available to choose!

So, how does the artist win the CASH prize? By having their artwork selected the most for display over the month of June! That will take you, the artist, bringing in anyone you desire to the show and marketing your work to the best of your ability!

The more works selected, the higher the cash prize will be! It depends solely on you, the artist, to win the prize and make the prize the highest it can be!

This is also a great opportunity for an artist that only wants to see their artwork immersed throughout the entire space for marketing purposes!

It’s going to be one heck of a show!

Every entry is $20, which is used to pay for the graphic designers to create these projection mapped displays. You can submit as many entries as you want, each entry will require a separate submission form. This is a juried call for entry, but all entries that are seen as consistent with HUE Gallery’s format of curation will be accepted.

ENTRIES ARE DUE ON MAY 1, 2020.
Use the following Jotform to submit your entry:

Photorealistic Paintings by Tati Holt – Opening Reception @ HUE Gallery of Contemporary Art
Jul 3 @ 4:00 pm – 10:00 pm

This month I am bringing one of my most talented friends from Los Angeles, California to Wichita to exhibit her photorealistic oil paintings. Every work is so realistic, I constantly get asked if they are photography, but alas, she has solved the mystery behind the painterly. The best part? Most of her work focuses on nostalgia, which is so close and dear to my heart! I cannot wait to see the body of works she creates for us!!

Come on out and relish in the glory that is… Tati Holt!
